Nothing new will be achieved in Parliament’s joint session, says Imran

ISLAMABAD: Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has said that nothing new will be achieved in the Parliament’s joint session, ARY News reported on Wednesday.

PTI Chairman said, “I stand by decision to boycott Joint Session as nothing new will be achieved that was not achieved with PTI’s active participation in the all-parties conference.”

He asked that how politicians with morality can accept a Nawaz Sharif as their Prime Minister when he has been caught money laundering in Panama Papers.

“Mian Panama Sharif has been caught money laundering, tax evading & hiding of assets thereby losing all moral legitimacy to be PM,” Khan tweeted.

He said that PM Nawaz Sharif has two options left. He added that the prime minister should present himself for accountability like United Kingdom’s ex-premier David Cameron or to step down like the Iceland former PM Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson.


Imran Khan led PTI has decided to boycott the joint session of the parliament.

Chairman PTI talking to media yesterday said that the joint session will result in nothing substantial except for “endorsing Nawaz Sharif as Prime Minister who has lost all moral authority”.

“We will continue our National Assembly boycott till either Nawaz Sharif resigns or presents himself for accountability according to the Terms of References (TORs) decided by the opposition,” he said.

He said the purpose of the joint session was to convey a message that the whole nation is united against Indian aggression and we already stand with Kashmiris.

Imran said despite reservations PTI sent Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Dr Shireen Mazari on Monday at the All Parties Conference (APC) for national unity and to convey a strong message to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

‘Orange Lines, metro buses don’t make great nations’

Later PTI Chairman while addressing a large gathering on the ‘World Teacher’s Day’ in Peshawar said, teachers, not Orange Line Trains or metros make great nations in the world.

He said that there was a time when the system of education was flourishing in Pakistan, which was ruined by governments through corruption.

Khan said his government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was trying to make institutions stronger in the province while reforming systems in schools and hospitals.

He announced that the provincial government has inducted at least 34 thousand students into the government schooling system, which was a great achievement.
